Hmm. Gripping.

"The Rationalizer system consists of two components - the EmoBracelet and the EmoBowl. The bracelet measures the arousal component of the user’s emotion through a galvanic skin response sensor. This arousal level is rendered as a dynamic light pattern on either the EmoBracelet itself or on the EmoBowl. The higher the arousal level, the more intense the dynamic light pattern becomes: the number of elements increases, the speed increases and the color shifts from a soft yellow, via orange, to a deep red."

It's really interesting how much of a factor the initial impulse is and which market out there is more of an impulse-informed business than the stock market?
This was a fascinating bit. I read MR, too. Cowan's amazing.

Ha. I got you the EmoBracelet. That would be a funny thing to utter to someone. And even funnier if you actually got them the bracelet.

I agree with Udo's point. Only a few fields are especially initial instinct-informed the way the market is.
